Larger Text, Better Font for New Design

    The new design is good but it could be improved with larger text for the article and a clearer font that is easier to read.

    These sites have a similar layout but with better text (not an exhaustive list)

    Also there is a lot of wasted white space between the two columns (text and ads). The text could easily run further to the right. The font used could be improved.

      I agree janderson. What those 3 sites you've cited also have is one or more horizontal lines (dividers) at the top of the articles to give them a more ordered, professional look. The new HP layout looks too chaotic and disordered; as if the title, profile box, author attribution, and text have all been stuck on the page in seemingly random positions.

    How peculiar, I'm getting a message that no one has posted in this thread for two months!

    Anyhow, I see what you mean.  Even the SMH link, which has fairly small text, has a clearer font.

      I am seeing strange things also in the forums tonight.  I just visited one thread only 40 hours old with the last post two hours ago and it is "closed to reply."  Not sure how that happened there.  I am showing on this thread that "0" have responded, yet you are "1" and "1" should be reflected.
